Destruction AllStars is alive and well on PlayStation 5 — in fact, today sees the arrival of a big update to the vehicle-smashing multiplayer game. Season one, entitled Hotshots, is rolling out right now, with a 13GB game update available to download.

So, what does this new season bring to the table? Well, as outlined last week, quite a bit. First and foremost, season one introduces Alba, a new playable AllStar, one who can summon blockers from the floor while on foot, and has a laser-firing hero vehicle. But she's far from the only addition; the AllStar Pass is a battle pass-style system with which you can unlock all kinds of seasonal cosmetics. The more you play, the more you level up your AllStar Pass, and the more goodies you get. Furthermore, a photo mode is being added (though it will only work in single player matches of course), and Blitz is coming to season one a little later — a ranked game mode for the serious smashers among you.

As well as all that new content, the game's patch notes list some nice changes and bug fixes. Trophies that wouldn't pop before should now unlock, voice chat options have been improved, some balancing has been implemented (sorry, Bluefang users), and there's lots more besides.

If you've been away from the game for a bit, now might be a good time to jump back in. Again, season one begins today, and the update is live now. Will you be taking it for a test drive? Drift into the comments section below.
